Your 8th Arrondissement vacation rental will put you right in the middle of the action, with many of the city's famous landmarks right on your doorstep and quiet escapes to nature just a short hop away.

Things to do

Grand museums of the 8th Arrondissement

Museum hopping in Paris is a must, and the 8th Arrondissement alone offers several spots to soak up the cultural atmosphere and scope out amazing works of art. Just next to the historic Ponte Alexandre III Bridge, you'll find museums housed in a pair of stunning century-old buildings that look like a work of art themselves. At the Grand Palais, you can stroll through a collection of contemporary art and visit a science museum full of interactive displays sure to entertain even the youngest visitors. Just across the street, the Petit Palais brims with fine art from big names like Monet and Renoir.

Activities

Shopping excursions in the 8th Arrondissement

If you dream of frolicking along city streets in Paris with arms laden with shopping bags and the taste of fresh macarons on your tongue, then the Avenue des Champs-Elysees is where you need to be. Spanning more than a mile, this iconic tree-lined street is packed with high-end stores, delicious restaurants and stately mansions. If you walk the whole stretch, you'll start at an expansive city square and end at the historic Arc de Triomphe monument where you can climb stairs to the top for views of the street scene below with Paris' most famous landmark – the Eiffel Tower – in the distance.

Weather

Falling in love with spring and fall in Paris

Spring is a lovely time to visit Paris, as flowers are blooming in the city's perfectly-manicured gardens and the weather warms up just enough to spend long, sunny days outside strolling the historic streets and enjoying lazy afternoons savoring pastries at sidewalk cafes. The busy season begins in summer so, if you plan to visit then, be sure to book your 8th Arrondissement vacation rental early to secure your ideal dates. Come September and October, crowds simmer down a bit again as the temperature starts to cool and the changing leaves paint the town in stunning golden and orange shades.

Natural features

Escape from the city near the 8th Arrondissement

After you've spent some time enjoying the hustle and bustle around your 8th Arrondissement vacation rental, you can get back to nature at Bois de Boulogne, a more than 2,000-acre park just to the west that once served as a hunting ground for the royals. You'll encounter a variety of plant and tree life here along the walking routes and bicycle trails, while a pair of lakes welcome romantic boat rides on the water. For a day of family fun, pop by the wildlife reserve or stretch out for a picnic while the kids play on the lawns before heading back into the city.
